The number of people who visit a dental clinic annually is rising faster than the population, and it’s getting worse.
It’s estimated that 1 in 5 Americans have never visited a dentist in their lives, and one in four people are either over age 65 or don’t have health insurance.
And as a result, the number of dental clinics has been falling since the late 1990s, according to a report from the American Dental Association.
According to the association, nearly 70 percent of adults who visit dental clinics are not insured.
The report also found that nearly one in five adults ages 18 to 64 didn’t visit a dentist at all in 2016, down from almost one in six in 2013.
The number has fallen from 17.7 percent in 2000 to 10.5 percent in 2020.
A recent study from the National Center for Health Statistics also found the rate of people over age 60 not having dental insurance fell between 2011 and 2020, as well as from 4.1 percent to 1.4 percent.
The report says that the number and rate of dentists closing over the last decade are due to a number of factors, including the aging population and rising health care costs.
But there is one thing that could be causing the decline: the rise of online dental care.
A study by researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles found that online dental clinics and services have increased in popularity in recent years.
According the researchers, online clinics have more access to people who are younger and younger, which means they have more people in their communities.
According to the report, people in underserved communities are disproportionately targeted for these services, and there is an even greater disparity between younger and older adults.
And that could explain why online dental services have been increasing at such a rapid rate.
Researchers say this is because there are more dental assistants available to patients in those communities, so more of the people who can provide oral health care are in those areas.
And in addition to the online dental service, the report found that people in areas with higher rates of poverty have a higher risk of not having access to a dentist.
In a recent article in The Atlantic, Michael Geist, the author of the report and a professor at the Harvard School of Public Health, said the growing demand for online services could be contributing to a rising number of patients leaving the dentist office.
“The more people are using online services, the more they’re likely to be filling out the forms and filling in the forms faster,” Geist told The Atlantic.
This is one of the things that makes it difficult for dentists to keep up with this demand.
Dentists say that while they’re not going to shut down all of their clinics, it’s difficult to find qualified dental assistants in many communities.
And in fact, dental clinics can be hard to find because they can change locations and their staffs change frequently.
So, in some areas, the dental clinics that have been operating for years are struggling to keep pace with demand.
And Geist says it’s one of many factors that may be making it harder for the dental industry to keep its business afloat.
“The industry has to be flexible, and they’ve got to be able to absorb changes that the health care system is going through,” Geis said.
